BlackBerry Playbook survives temperatures of -20 C!

cold10032009

Good morning everyone.  I thought I would share a fun story of panic and relief that happened to me this morning.  Last night when I got home from work I exited my car with Playbook in hand.  I had to go get the garbage can and recycling boxes from the curb, so, I put down my Playbook on the roof of my car.  It stayed there.  ALL NIGHT.

Temperatures reached about -25 C last night in Vaughan, Ontario, just north of Toronto.

I found the Playbook this morning outside and panicked.  I brought it back inside and let it thaw for 30 minutes.  I pressed the power button with fear, but, when the red light came on I had a rush of relief.  Then when the BlackBerry Playbook logo popped up on the screen I was overjoyed.

So yes, my Playbook survived a night outside at -20C!!!

  1. Wow! Lucky you. I’ve had my car broken into in Vaughan. Ok, I did leave it unlocked by mistake. I guess you’re lucky you had a black Playbook and not a white iPad.

  2. And it didn’t get stolen. O Canada! Was it in a case?

    Really glad you have it back and its working. Which makes me think RIM should make BB Protect PlayBook compatible for those who aren’t as lucky as you.

  3. I left mine in my car overnight 2 nights ago. Still powered on. I was really happy
